Today's Word of the Lord

"For we know that our old self was crucified with him so that the body ruled by sin might be done away with, that we should no longer be slaves to sin - because anyone who has died has been set free from sin." Romans 6:6, 7

I arrived at KINSHIP CHRISTIAN RADIO January 1st, of 2006. I believe it was the hand of God that opened the door to grant me the desire of my heart, to return to full time Christian Radio Ministry. I feel that these last eight years at KINSHIP CHRISTIAN RADIO have been some of the most exciting years of my ministry. I love following the leading of the Lord, and being a part of the tapestry that the Lord would weave through KINSHIP CHRISTIAN RADIO's broadcast ministry.

I would like to introduce myself to you. I was born at an Air Force base in Puerto Rico, but was raised in Northeastern Ohio between Akron and Cleveland. I accepted the Lord as my Savior in my sophomore year of high school. I graduated from high school in 1973 and received a call into full time ministry. I attended North Central University in Minneapolis. It was at North Central where I met my wife, Jan (from Granton, Wisconsin) and was later married in May of 1975.

Since leaving college in January of 1978, I have served as an associate pastor in 4 churches (Neillsville, WI - Rochelle, IL - Carlinville, IL - and Rochester, MN) was a senior pastor in 2 churches (Gibson City, IL and Red Wing, MN) and have served at 3 Christian Radio stations as an on-air announcer, music director, program director or station manager (WQFL - Rockford, IL, WBGL - Champaign, IL, and WIBI - Carlinville, IL).

We have two grown children - Kevin and Kelly and our daughter married Isaac Smitz on August 10, 2013. We also have a beautiful Golden Retriever named Cody. Both are graduates of Dover-Eyota High School in Minnesota and the Rockford Master's Commission Discipleship program in Illinois. My son works in the mail department at Mayo Clinic in Rochester, MN., and my daughter is para-professional at Kasson Mantorville Schools.

I love sports. I am a Cleveland Sports fanatic - Indians #1, then Browns and Cavaliers. It is very therapeutic for me to attend as many games as possible. I also enjoy all the Minnesota sports teams. My wife, Jan loves music, playing flute and piano, reading and doing crafts.

I thank the Lord for KINSHIP CHRISTIAN RADIO, and for how He uses the station to make an impact on lives of people each and every day.

Talk to you on the Radio.
